Angelina Jolie: Fidelity Isn't Essential

If the illustrious Telegraph's translation is to be believed, Angelina Jolie isn't tied to the idea of fidelity.

Jolie gave an interview to Das Neue in which she said:

"I doubt that fidelity is absolutely essential for a relationship. It's worse to leave your partner and talk badly about him afterwards.

"Neither Brad nor I have ever claimed that living together means to be chained together. We make sure that we never restrict each other."

She added, "The sparks fly at home if the nice Brad fails to see that he's wrong and reacts in a defiant way. Then I can get so angry that I tear his shirt."

Jolie and Brad Pitt have been together over four years and were in New York earlier Christmas week with their kids.
